[ Update: Delivered! ] Fundraiser: Would you help finance a plugin that would allow MUP (Meteor UP) to deploy AWS?


I tried making a one time donation of $ 100, but it seems to set it to a monthly subscription…
(I’ve sent a support request to opencollective.com )

Edit: It seems like I was running into a bug, the kind folks of opencollective fixed it. Donated $100! yeey! We’re at $736

I’ve added my 100$ donation!


I’ve added $100 donation! (as Asmakam)


BTW, ups to @msavin for encouraging people to charge appropriately for their work while also providing extremely solid reasoning to do so. Aspirations can only take a project so far, the majority of developers are living hand-to-mouth like everyone else and projects that don’t pay, or support a project that pays, typically die a slow painful death-by-backlog due to neglect.


Hello friends!

Apologies for the late update.

Very nice to see the additional donations that have come in.

The current status is: $ 675 of $ 850

@nadeemjq, $ 125
@sacha, $ 100,
@diaconutheodor, $ 50
@batist, $100
@alawi, $100
@asmakam, $100
Carsten Mayer, $ 100

This is counting only the people who have notified here or on github.
There are more $ 100 sized donations. Please me know if you have donated! :slight_smile:

Counting all > $ 50 donations, we are at $ 825.

I’ve asked @zodern if it is okay to count all donations above $ 50.

The plan that @zodern has laid out is the following:

I will start work on the plugin on Monday, November 5th. It will be finished between Nov 20 and Nov 24.

I will work on the plugin in a private repository on GitHub. When it is ready, I will invite you and the other people who sponsored it to review the plugin and try it.

~ Email correspondance.

I’m so impressed by how the Meteor Community came together on this.
Thanks to everyone who has participated!

That’s awesome! Definitely a nice story of the community coming together.


I just gave away my Meteor deployment script. Enjoy.


Any updates on this?


It is now public!

Docs at: https://github.com/zodern/mup-aws-beanstalk/blob/master/docs/index.md
Install with npm i -g mup-aws-beanstalk

Thank you to all who donated toward this plugin!


That’s awesome.

It would be really great if we had LTS. I imagine that companies (or individuals) could contribute per month to have support and possibly new features.

And now that it’s done the first version, we can aim higher, just like @msavin stated.

I’ve missed this fundraiser (just saw it now), but you can count me in on future ones, because specially for a company, to make sure that at least new Meteor versions are supported within a sensible timeframe is very important.


Thanks for the great new addition! I tried it out and have a few issues -

  • health check path /aws-health-check-3984729847289743128904723. ELB fails all health checks and instance is set to degraded/severe. I saw health-check.js which is supposed to run on that path and ping the app, I don’t know why it didn’t work.

  • Node version is set to 6, but I see an install failure

Env Event: [Instance: i-0b06593fdcdbad37f] Command failed on instance. Return code: 1 Output: (TRUNCATED).../opt/elasticbeanstalk/containerfiles/ebnode.py", line 180, in npm_install
    raise e
subprocess.CalledProcessError: Command '['/opt/elasticbeanstalk/node-install/node-v6.11.5-linux-x64/bin/npm', '--production', 'install']' returned non-zero exit status 1. 
Hook /opt/elasticbeanstalk/hooks/appdeploy/pre/50npm.sh failed.

For Meteor 1.6 apps I am using Node 8.9.3 successfully.

  • “Load balancing is automatically configured and supports web sockets and sticky sessions.” I saw that in the target group which is created, Stickiness is set to false.

  • If I already have an ACM cert, is there a way to use it, or can I just specify ssl and it will use it if it finds it for the domain?

  • does the ROOT_URL specified in mup.js automatically map to the EB app domain? If not I can add a mapping in my dns, but I am using Route53 and if there’s a way it would be nice.

My app is a 1.6 Meteor app, I am using a simple mup.js as recommended in the docs, without ssl.

Nice work.

We’re still using Galaxy but we’re tempted to move away and a tool like this would certainly help. We’d be interested in sponsoring continued development as well.
